Yes, I am uneducated about the nuances of Windows Mobile, but I know if we had an alternative to "no resolution time frame currently available" we would take it.
Any real innovative workarounds out there? 3rd party attachment services that does support the new file format?
I'll assume you're not just flaming for the sake of it...
If you read the RIM documentation you'll get a list of the file formats that it supports native attachment opening..which includes .doc and .xls (and more), no where does it say that it supports .docx and xlsz. How much more verification do you need.
This is such a non-issue, I'm pretty sure that SP4 will be out 'soon' (I'll try to get more of an idea next week) and as LadyDI say I don't know of ANY of my enterprise customers that have rolled out Office '07 beyond a limited beta trial..
